"Play Us A Hymn...You're the Piano Man!"


These past two weeks have been good and full of work. On April 21 we baptized a 10 year old kid named Jorge. We were actually knocking doors when we knocked this one door and a young man answered us in the door. I asked him if he had talked with missionaries before and he said that he had and that he, his sister, and mom, were all members, only that they couldn´t attend because they had to always work Sunday mornings. But! He told us his younger brother Jorge wanted to be baptized. So, we went over to their house the next day and talked with Jorge and he wanted to be baptized, so in the following week we taught him and then had his baptism this past 21st of April. The good thing is that since he comes, his dad also comes. We have talked with him a little and he said he would like to be baptized, only that he feels he needs to prepare more before he gets baptized, so we are currently working with him. Cool little miracles. Oh how I love them.

One of the neatest and most spiritual experiences of these past two weeks happened last week with a guy named Juan. We were talking outside with one of our investigators when Juan came out to talk with him and such. He introduced himself to us and started asking questions about what we do and everything. We answered and then he invited us into his house to drink some water since it was really hot outside. We went in and he started to ask more questions about Joseph Smith and The Book of Mormon and was really super interested in what we were telling him. So, we set up an appointment for a couple days after. When we went over, we talked about the Restoration of the Gospel. When I recounted the experience of Joseph Smith to him, the Spirit was super strong in the room. I told him how the Spirit testifies of what is true and how it invites us to act. In that, I explained feelings that come from the Holy Spirit and as I described my feelings that come from the Spirit he was way super excited and explained that his were very similar and that he felt something truly marvelous. We invited him to be baptized and he happily said yes. We explained about The Book of Mormon and he told us he knew it was all true. He is way super excited for his baptism and is working as hard as he can to obey the Word of Wisdom so that he can be baptized. Way exciting for both him and us!

Well, that´s all for this week! Hope you all are doing just swell! Keep on keeping on! Love you all!

¡Ten fe y se obediente!

Todo mi amor,
Elder San Diego

P.S. Oh yeah! I also played the piano in our sacrament meeting to accompany the hymns! Nervous, but I played perfectly.
